In response to veganism growing at substantial rates around the globe, Intrepid Travel has unveiled three new tours specifically highlighting vegan food culture.

The limited edition vegan food trips will be rolled out in India, Thailand and Italy departing in 2019.

Tara Kennaway, the company’s regional product manager, said: “Our local tour leaders are receiving more vegetarian and vegan food requests from UK travellers and ‘Vegan’ is also now one of our most commonly searched words on the Intrepid website. Food is one of the best ways to connect with a local culture, but dietary requirements can be tricky with language barriers. Why should vegans miss out on authentic food experiences? You might think somewhere like Italy, famous for its pizza and pasta, won’t have vegan options readily available but the opposite is true and we wanted to share our leader’s local knowledge and to cater to vegan travellers.”

The new tours were developed by the adventure brand’s destination and food product teams, with insight from a team of vegan influencers from around the world, and each trip will offer delicious plant-based food experiences in their respective locales and include insider tips on where to find the best vegan eats.

As an example, the eight-day ‘Thailand Vegan Food Adventure’ departs on February 23, 2019 and starts from £845 per person.

During their journey guests will taste the likes of khnom gui chai (Chinese chive dumplings), khao lam (a gooey sticky rice with red beans wrapped in bamboo) and Thai banana cake. In Bangkok, they will discover the railway market at Mae Klong, prepare a Thai feast of tofu soup, pad thai and sticky rice and enjoy a home stay experience in Chiang Mai, having the opportunity to witness everyday Thai life unfold in a small village.
